4. Johnny Winter is one of my favorites
Great blues players:
Son House
Robert Johnson
Duane Allman
Blind Willie Johnson
Mississippi Fred McDowell
Lightnin' Hopkins
Keith Richards
Little Walter

I think that George Harrison is a very under-rated slide player. He had one of the coolest and most distinctive sounds. Strange thing about him is he started playing slide out of nowhere. I don't know when he found the time to work on it.
